The Galliars of Gallia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.255 billion Gallians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Belgica. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Gallian economy, worth a remarkable 3,759 trillion anythings a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 217,886 anythings, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,026,476 per year while the poor average 2,142, a ratio of 945 to 1.

Ironic death by tasering is on the rise amongst door-to-door taser salesmen, belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace', the nation's armed forces are recruiting thousands to help colonise Brasilistan, and no animal is considered endangered if there's another that looks kind of like it. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Gallia's national animal is the Corvus Corax, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Gallia is ranked 73,663rd in the world and 34th in Hippy Haven for Most Stationary, with 123.3963099152 Days.
